Short sale of securities involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. Equity investing involves risks, including potential loss of the principal amount invested.

Being non-diversified, the Fund can invest a larger portion of its assets in the stocks of a limited number of companies than a diversified fund. Non-diversification increases the risk of loss to the Fund if the values of these securities decline.
